Trade Finance Global launches international trade finance series
Trade Finance Global (TFG) is delighted to announce a new collaboration with Google (Market Finder) to launch a series of trade ﬁnance guides for businesses looking to trade internationally.
Market Finder is a free to use Google tool designed to help businesses looking to grow their overseas sales or expand abroad. It offers detailed insights into which markets are best suited for your product or service, and also includes a range of articles, guides and success stories to help you plan and roll-out your international growth strategy.
TFG’s and Google’s trade ﬁnance guide series is divided into three comprehensive guides:
International trade ﬁnance guide for ﬁrst-time exporters
The International trade ﬁnance guide for ﬁrst-time exporters looks at the basics of trade ﬁnance, and the different types commonly available. It also explores how trade ﬁnance can help companies in real terms, and the main risk and challenges involved.
This guide contains:
- How does trade ﬁnance help companies in real terms?
- How does trade ﬁnance work?
- Types of trade ﬁnance
- What are the main risks and challenges in trade ﬁnance?
Methods of payment in international trade ﬁnance
In the methods of payment in international trade ﬁnance guide, readers can get a better understanding of pre- and post-shipment ﬁnance, as well as a background to supply chain ﬁnance.

Lastly, the process of securing international trade ﬁnance guides covers not only the different types of trade ﬁnance lenders that operate, but also the basics of how to successfully go about applying for trade ﬁnance.

This user-friendly series of guides was created to provide readers with a comprehensive understanding of trade ﬁnance by breaking down the different types of international trade ﬁnance available, outlining the steps involved in how to apply for trade ﬁnance, and addressing the main challenges and risk factors associated with global trading.
Deepesh Patel, co-founder of Trade Finance Global, said: “With the USD $1.7tn trade ﬁnance gap just getting bigger, many companies are in desperate need of ﬁnancing solutions for their exports. Add to that factors such as Brexit and rising inflation, and it’s fair to say that the international trade ﬁnance landscape continues to become increasingly complex.
“These guides are designed to help newcomers navigate their way through this maze. Their launch comes at a crucial nexus point in our economic history when information is key, and we are delighted to partner with Google on this project.”
Marco Giorgini, Google vertical platforms marketing Lead, said: “We believe these guides will give businesses much-needed insights into the world of trade ﬁnance, and be a vital ﬁrst stepping stone on their journey to securing ﬁnance for their global expansion plans.”
